Notice; Copyright of CSJ Journals


English language, monthly, 1,600 pages/650 papers for 2001
The journal titled Chemistry Letters was founded in 1972 for the rapid distribution of important research results. Initially, articles up to 6 pages in English, Japanese, German, or French were accepted. The size of articles was reduced to 4 pages in 1977 and to 2 pages in 1995, when a two-column style was adopted. The language was limited to English in 1987. This journal currently has a monthly circulation of about 43,200 copies. Most of the accepted papers are published within 3 months. To facilitate easier access to readers all over the world, a web version became available in 2001. This was linked to Chemical Abstract at the beginning of 2002. The digitalization of past issues is now in progress. Issues published since 1998 are already in electronic form. To further reduce the time required from submission to publication, the "Advance View" system was introduced in the beginning of 2003, where electronic versions can easily be printed. Since the digital journal delivery service began, the number of visits from foreign countries has exceeded that from inside Japan. This is in marked contrast with the circulation of the paper version of the Journal.
